With Two Injuries, Williams Is Facing US Open With Confidence

Venus Williams is fighting a back injury problem which influenced her Cincinnati semi-final loss to Li Na, with the veteran American who is already battling an energy-sapping syndrome looking to the positive in hopes of being 100 per cent for the upcoming US Open.


Federer Is Number 1 Going Into The US Open

Roger Federer will remain safely on the ATP top ranking for at least another three weeks through the end of the US Open after the Swiss ace notched his sixth title of the season as he hammered Novak Djokovic 6-0, 7-6 (9/7) in Cincinnati.


Djokovic Forgets Cincinnati Loss And Is Ready To Defend US Open Title

Novak Djokovic has quickly put aside a disheartening finals defeat in Cincinnati to Roger Federer, with the Serb now switching gears for his title defence at the US Open from next week.

"Maybe playing a couple weeks in a row, four weeks in a row, got me maybe mentally.  Physically it didn't. I felt okay on the court.  We move on.  There is New York in a few days, and I really need to perform my best there," said the No. 2.
